if i get killzone 3 from gamefly will it come with an actual killzone 3 case or will it be a generic gamefly case?

you guys say that you complained about the cases and got free ones....

if i recieve a dented/mashed case can i do the same?

i take very good care of my games and my discs, with zero effort. I don't understand why so many others have smashed up cases. You can always tell which games in my set are from gamestop due to the quality difference. I hate crappy cases.

Gamefly's stuff always comes with the original case/manual/art work and they are always mint. This is because they don't send the rentals out with the original stuff - they keep all that intact and just use it when they sell the games (a very nice thing for all us CAGs who like complete games). The disc, on the other hand, is a crap shoot since it is, after all, a former rental.

And BoromirsFan, the smashed cases discussed here were a result of damage during shipping - it has got nothing to do with how people take care of stuff at home.

FWIW, all the PS3 games I've gotten have been in excellent condition. I wish someone would post a picture of these "chipped" discs so I can see what that even means. I'm not quite sure I follow. It would seem to me any chips on the outside edge would make the disc unplayable since the data goes out to very near the edge.

All you have to do is just run your finger on the outside edges of your PS3 Gamefly used games. You can't miss them. Just place your finger vertical to the edge of the discs, and feel around them. You will feel multiple dents. And upon closer inspections of those dents, you'll see all the chips.

How big of a file can I attach here? Can I PM them to you? I don't have any software that will resize my pictures, but my Canon can take pictures of around 4MB each. I can try to take some pictures of my 2 games that I had just received from Gamefly (Homefront with over 10 dents, and Bulletstorm with about 5 dents), and send them to you.

Edit: I tried posting pictures that I just took, which are a lot clearer and deeper than the one posted below me. But I don't have the option to post attachments right now. Why is that?

I couldn't add them as attachments, so I added them to my "Picture Album." Just click on my Profile, and the Album with 3 pictures of Homefront can be found on the left side.

You can see it in this photo. They're scattered around the edges of the whole disc, but don't appear to go deep enough to interfere with disc reading so far. It's like someone inexplicably bumped the edges with a sharp rock.

I received Castlevania and Crysis 2 ( both PS3 ) today. Castlevania was in near mint condition. However, the case for Crysis 2 was broken in half. The manual, cover art and disc seem to be ok. First time it has happened so I've contacted GF to see if they can mail me a plastic case.

Save for NFS, almost every recent purchase from Gamefly has been plagued with these. As I recall, the chips are caused by the USPS sorting machines:

Since ordering from GF has moreso become a gamble, I'll probably stick to buying used games elsewhere. :\

I'm on day 7 of waiting for my Castlevania order to show up. I won't worry about it until sometime next week, but damn I wish they'd start having multiple games I want on the same damn night ;)


Spoke too soon: the game showed up today. And, exactly like the copy they sent me the first time I ordered, it can't read the first disc.

Fuck you, Gamefly.

somehow received both :360: DNF (shipped on the 8th) and :ps3: DS2 (shiiped on the 11th) today. DNF is scratched to shit and DS2 has chips in it, both seem to be working fine. Next time I think I'll get priority shipping.

Anyone know a sure-fire way to exploit this? Should I simply make more Kongregate accounts using different emails to get more codes or should I delete and re-download the app as well?

I remember that article. I had a feeling that might be the cause of the chips on the discs.

I think Gamefly resurfaces the discs before selling them, but the disc being resurfaced wouldn't take away the little chips. But if the chips are so small like they are in the picture above, it should not cause a problem with it playing/working 100% though.

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

Just got Crysis 2 today for PS3 everything was in great condition but I do see the chips on the edge of the disc. Should I even bother GF for it or just forget about it?

Cars 2 and Lego Pirates for 360 showed up today. Lego Pirates looks mint condition, Cars has a few small scratches, typical of a rental. Both installed and ran fine. Despite some folks having problem, Gamefly has been rock solid for me. 36 games purchased from them over the past 2 years, and never had a bad disc.

This is the first time that I've had issues with the disc condition of a game from Gamefly. My 360 won't read the second disc of the Castlevania I received...

Yeah, same here. Bulletstorm Epic Edition (ordered 10/8) and Crysis 2 Limited Edition (ordered 10/11) arrived today (10/15) and both in perfect condition except Bulletstorm had 7 small chips on disc. First one I've ever had like that from Gamefly.

I'll post if it doesn't work right. This still doesn't deter me. Great deals.

Thank you guys for all the feedback. :applause: Good community.

No, Gamefly does not resurface discs. These are rental discs, which have probably been all over the country at one time or another, so you should expect to get a disc in less than great condition. I swore off Gamefly a couple of years back after receiving some beat up discs. I just bought MvC3 from them the other day, so we'll see how that turns out when it gets here. PS3 version, so that should help some. No way I would ever order a 360 disc from Gamefly. You just look at a 360 disc the wrong way and it get's a scratch on it.

I think Gamefly resurfaces discs as well. Either that, or I'm getting unused ones.

Based on the number of copies they get for a game and how popular it is/was, you might have a shot at getting a copy that was rarely rented out or possibly never rented out. It's a crap shoot.....and I'm unlucky at gambling. lol

Resurfacing would not cause the chips. You'd see swirls on the disc. Not to mention blu-rays have an extra layer of protection on them.
